Billionaire Dave Hodgson from the Sunshine Coast in Australia says if Christian businesses changed how they did business, they could transform cities and society.
He says we only need 6% of the businesses in a city to change how they operate and that would create a tipping point that will transform a city.
This is the basis of a new movement in Australia called the "All Shall Prosper (ASP) Movement." The key to that movement is Christians discovering God's "assignment" for their lives, getting rid of greed and corruption and striving to make every business transaction a win-win proposition.
Hodgson says when he started to follow these principles, his business went from being in debt to over $100 million in two years and eight months. His net worth is now more than $1.2 billion.
Hodgson says his first goal is to turn Australia into the world's first "sheep nation" as Jesus outlined in Matthew 25. This would be a nation that took care of the poor and most disenfranchised in society and where sharing and caring cause all to be lifted out of poverty. He wants Australia to then become a prototype for the rest of the world. Last year his movement, together with many Christians, helped elect a Spirit-filled prime minister in what CNN called a "miracle election."
